One key benefit of the Lean Business Model Canvas and DECA’s new entrepreneurship guidelines is that each event utilizes components of the canvas, allowing the teacher to use only one model for these events and allowing students to continue to expand on their plans through multiple competitive events. The chart below clearly shows which components of the lean business model canvas are used in each of DECA’s Entrepreneurship Events.

NOTES

DECA’s Franchise Business Plan (EFB) does not follow the lean start-up methodology and terminology. It utilizes the Small Business Administration (SBA) business model and terminology. DECA’s Business Growth Plan (EBG) does not follow the lean start-up methodology and terminology. It utilizes a unique outline focused on assessing how an existing business can grow and expand.
